In this way they are interesting, even if challenging.

Name Description Intresting Countries Notes
Sunset of Merethic Era The Merethic Era is coming to its logical end. Nirn is divided into many independent states, each of which wants to achieve hegemony not only in its own region, but throughout Nirn. Only time will tell who will ascend and who will fall in Oblivion. Sandbox Bookmark, does not represent the political situation in that period.
Dawn of First Era The dawn of the First Era is the sunset of the elven hegemony in Tamriel. In Valenwood, another war of succession ends, putting a representative of the Camoran dynasty on a wooden throne. Taking advantage of this, the Ayleid Territories were able to gain independence and create own state around the White-Gold Tower. The Colonies in Hammerfell, united around the city of Illiac Bay, Santiel, could also feel the wind of freedom. Even the Hegemony of Direnii, which could barely hold the territory in the North of the country, could not prevent this. The White Elfs are also doing badly, as most of their territory is already under the control of settlers from Atmora.

Second Dragon War Many years have passed since the slave fetters of the dragon priests were broken. It cost the lives of hundreds of heroes, thousands of warriors who followed them, and tens of thousands of those who did not wait for their return. But we forget the lessons of the past ... And once again people began to worship the damned in the hope of gaining power, wealth, or simply happiness. They raised mighty priests, restored shrines and temples, and began to kill those who tried to stop them. It seems that a new war is already inevitable.

Singliu Crisis Singliu Peninsula was discovered by Akaviri settlers, on their way to Upper Tsakara. At the time of the Empire, this place became an important trading center, since the trade routes from the Metropolia, the Colonies and the States of Po Tun intersected there. After the Fall of Volatra, when the end of the empire became apparent, Po Tun occupied the peninsula, creating a buffer between the Tsaesci invaders and the former Colonies. For many years the situation around the peninsula remained unchanged, but the new ruler of Volatra, who ascended the throne, like his predecessor, who staged a bloody revolution, began to make plans to conquer this strategic lands.

Fall of the Old World The order of the Old World is under threat. In the newly conquered Nordic High Rock, the clan of Direnii rises from the ashes. Thousands of kilometers away from it, the orthodox teachings of the prophet Marukh, which casts doubt on the unity of the Nedic people, begin to spread throughout the lands. And the Old Kingdom of Nords itself is bursting at the seams, because its king is old and has no legitimate heir. The vultures have already gathered over these lands and are flying around.

Intervention in Hammerfell For many years, Hammerfell remained the island of Ayleid culture on Tamriel. However, now these territories are declining due to the ever-growing disagreements between the Ayleid rulers. It is obvious that soon the Kingdom will have nothing to oppose to the neighbors, who are just waiting for the opportunity to destroy the last bastion of Daedric Lords and gain control over the strategically important lands.

Clash of the Greats A new conflict is ready to break out on Tamriel. The young state of Direnii, which in less than a hundred years had succeeded in conquest of all High Rock and much of Hammerfel, approached the fertile lands of Colovia, which have long been in the sphere of interests of the Ayleid state, then the Alessian Empire, and now the Order of the First Cyrodiilian Saint, whose ruler, after a successful coup, became an ambitious general Gorieus. Obviously, these confrontations will be able to exploit the still less visible countries, so that the political map of Nirn can again change beyond recognition.

Rise of High Rock The unrest in the Hegemony of Direnii among the dominant Breton population, caused by the tightening of laws, the consolidation of racial segregation and the prohibition of Alessian reforms, developed into a global uprising, which even a large and well-prepared army, hardened in battles for deserts and steppes of Hammerell, rich in resources and unique flora and fauna. A fire of rebellion swept the whole north of High Rock. Angry mobs, led by the nobility of Bretonsim, seize the castle behind the castle, exterminating all the elves in their path. And their path lies to Daggerfall.

Coral Kingdom Thras is an archipelago, forever surrounded by legends and tales. Since the time of the Merethic Era, it has been inhabited by the Sloads, a mysterious race that left the seabed at the times when the elves did not colonised the Summerset Islands. The coral reefs of Thras provide isolation of the region, however, they prohibit the further expansion of Sloads, which, however, did not prevent them from devastating attacks on the nearby lands. But now the the elven hegemony in the Western Ocean has come to an end with the cede of High Rock to Bretons, and the Sloads got a chance to remind of themselves again and realize their ancient dream of founding the Coral Kingdom in the middle of the warm waters of Nirn.

The Poison Song Over the Tamriel, the Poison Song is pouring. She began to sound in the highlands of the Vvardenfell, among the hills of Morrowind, and in the gorges of High Rock. The Song takes the possession of the minds of people and beasts, awakens in them all their most forbidden desires, ranging from envy and greed to lust and pushes the limp creatures on terrible deeds. And now the tribes of the Orcs begin the next internecine war. Chimeras, which once were wandering on ash-covered hills and plains, begin to settle down to increase their wealth. And people suddenly decide to cleanse the world of those who have threatened their lives for centuries. How much more will we hear the sound of Poison Song? Nobody knows. But all will be horrified after she stops her singing.

Year 660
The Great Schism The events that took place in the vastness of Morrowind after the establishment of the Resdine-Dwemeret hegemony on these lands are called the Great Schism. Its main reason was the disunity of the ruling elites of the country, which, due to the absence of an external threat that previously united them, began to divide into groups seeking to control all the limited resources of Morrowind, ranging from money to religious policies and population. As a result of this policy, Resdine-Dwemeret in 40 years turned from a dominant player on the political map of Tamriel into a quasi-state facing a threat of civil war, willing to destroy or change once and for all those who decide to participate in it.

Yokudan Migration Another test is prepared by the Gods for the long-suffering nation of Yokuda. Thousands of people in one moment will lose everything that was dear to them. But this time, not because of the bloody war for the throne. The threat will come from the sea, and force the survivors to look for a new house on the streets of an unknown continental that lies in the East. This journey will change their culture, life and customs, but one thing will remain unchanged - an unshakable spirit that made Yokuda rise from the ashes again and again.

Winter War Thousands of years ago there was a climatic catastrophe that turned South Kamal into the Ice Desert, with snowcaps of mountains and hills rising above it, and allowing countless hordes of Oblivion's creatures to settle in these once fertile places. But now, after so many years, the story may repeat again. Armies of Daedra are gathering at the northern borders of their possessions and standing in a daze, as if waiting for something. It looks like a new war is coming, on which stake there will be put everything.

Invasion of Balfiera Stability in the provinces around Iliac Bay is plummeting. Far in the South, the Redguards, who had recently arrived from distant Yokuda, are gaining strength. They consider the whole region of Hammerfell to be their legitimate land, which runs counter to the policy of the weakening, but not yet defeated Direnii Hegemony. Meanwhile, in the North, there is still a fragile, but already proven to be effective, alliance between the Orcs and the goblins. Obviously, its goal will be another campaign to the rich lands of the Bretons, who, after several brilliant victories over the greenskins, no longer considered Orsinium a threat to their security. Clouds are gathering over Iliac Bay, and soon its waters will be stained with blood.

Siege of Orsinium For many years, the Orcs made devastating raids on the lands of the Bretons and other races who settled on the shores of the Iliac Bay, destroying everything in their path. Over the centuries, thousands of brave warriors laid down their lives to stop the green-skinned aggressors, but all these attempts were doomed to failure. However, now the Army of the High Rock Kingdom is ready to move to Orsinium along with mercenaries from the young state of the Redguards. Will this be the end for the Orc people? Or will the flame of rage, blessed by Malacath, not be able to go round now?

She was born, although her mother wished her death. She grew up among the palaces and parks of the Imperial City, although She was supposed to be in a separate castle on the periphery of the civilized world. She was the only one of the Royal Children who did not get sick with the unknown Plague, although Death always followed her. And now, when the Crown shone on her head, She is no longer just a Pronoun. She is Hestra Alessian. And She will conquer the whole world known to her, or die trying.

Ascendence of Tsakara Over the past centuries, Tsaesci has been content with little. Despite their eternal hunger, they turned down their ardor and began to build friendly relations with the rest of the Akaviri nations, fighting fear and prejudice. However, when most of the countries of Akavir were plunged into the Chaos of the wars for faith, the throne or the restoration of justice, Tsaesci no longer needed to tame their hunger. they have already consumed livestock throughout Tsakar, and now their gaze is once again turned to the East. This s the high point of Tsaesci. Now, they are destined either to devour everything in their path, or to die trying.

A hundred years ago, not a single merchant thought about leaving his native lands and embarking on a long and dangerous journey to Tamriel. However, now, when the last stronghold of the First People has fallen, nothing more stops the entire squadron of Tsaesci from the expedition there, and when they will reach the fertile lands of High Rock and the rich cities, scattered like pearls along the Iliac Bay, people and elves will bow down their heads in fear of Akaviri might or become the new livestock for the ever hungry reptiles.

Their search threatens not only scientists blinded by their permissiveness, but also millions of living creatures in the vast expanses of Nirn, because in the event of failure, the fabric of time will be torn and the world will plunge into the abyss of Chaos.

Thrassian Plague An unknown disease, the responsibility for the origin of which apparently lies on the mysterious state of the Sloads, begins its dark path throughout Tamriel. Nothing can stop this infection - neither the high walls of castles, nor the genius of doctors and magicians. Soon, in all cities, cemeteries will be overflowing and the bodies of the deceased will be burned at the stake in the middle of the squares, regardless of wealth or origin. And those lucky ones whose lives will not be affected by the plague are mired in endless strife, the result of which will be only new graves. Will Tamriel survive this ordeal, or become a dead desert?

War of Righteousness The end of the Alessian Order is as near as ever. The government of the Imperial City loses more and more power over the provinces where heresy and nationalism are spreading. No one else - neither neighbors, not the citizens themselves, - has any doubt that the time of theocracy has passed, and that everything possible is possible to take form the dying regime by force or cunning. However, the Order does not intend to give up positions without resistance and the streets of many cities are already drowned in the blood of both the rebels and the government troops. It seems that soon the largest theocracy of Tamriel will perish in the abyss of civil war.
